A trip to Fantasy Island*


This weekend, Cockatoo Island will become my idea of a Fantasy Island. There will be drinks, talks, Julio Bermejo will be on hand making his fantastics Tommy’s Margarita.

You’ll get to try some delicious cocktails like Tattoo and his lady friend are enjoying in the picture above.

The Saturday has already sold out, and this is by no means an event for everyone. You should probably only go if you like $6-$8 cocktails and one or more of the brands listed below.


$15 admission (plus booking fee; cocktails, samples and food not included). Cocktail Island will use “Cocktail Currency”- purchase these tokens to buy well-priced cocktails


Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 November, 11am-6pm (general public)

Monday 21 November, 11am-5pm (hospitality trade day)


Cockatoo Island Convict Precinct will be transformed into a “piazza” with tasting rooms and a cafe


Cockatoo Island is just a 12-minute ferry trip from Circular Quay. Services run 7-days a week. To plan your trip contact Transport Info on 131 500 or visit 131500.com.au
Water taxis available by request. Marina for private boats to dock for two hours at Cockatoo Island, should you be up for partying like a rockstar
